  • Hm, I always keep the lens cap in my right hand pants pocket. Never lost one.
    To me, it seems that this gimmick would make me lose the cap, unless it were a VERY strong magnet. And a very strong...

  • That could be their strategy, but if they do that, they'll lose many customers. I had the same experience with a household applience, and after sending it back and forth several times, my patience...

  • Thank you for having the courage to share these pictures. I am a father of three myself, and all your picture are very recognisable. I am sure that your children will be thankful to you for these...

  • Commented on Am I missing something here? article

    I have been using the V1 for almost a year now. I bought it when the price came down after the V2 was announced.

    It is my favourite walk around camera (I also own a 550D and a GH3), for family...

  • ...every single frame from the DRAGON is 109meg

    Does anybody take this fact into consideration?

  • In my opinion, the jpegs are superior. Why bother with raw in this case? There's little or no improvement at all.

  • According to eoshd.com, the GH4 will cost $1,999 and the Interface Unit will cost the same.
    As it happens I ordered a GH3 today (the whole kit), and I 'm having mixed feelings now. For what I do,...

  • I think the Lumina 1020 crop images have been swapped by mistake. Right?

  • Commented on Fujifilm X20 Review preview

    This kind of background blur, even at 112mm, is never going to isolate a subject against the background. The background is still distracting.
    Your picture is misleading, btw, because the background...

  • Good for you Forrest!
    The least we can say is that this photographer has a message, per definition. Many 'gear heads' on this forum take and post 'empty' pictures showing off their newest lens or...

  • The specs here are amazing! It seems Sony hit the right spot: sound OK, ND filter OK, many buttons OK.
    I'm pleasantly surprised that Sony seems to super charge their new Vegas Pro software, and...

  • Commented on Is the snapshot dead? post

    When the tone of an article is negative, Connect uses the term 'smartphone'; when the tone of an article is positive, Connect uses the term 'iPhone'. That is my observation.

  • Pfffft, my Nikon V1 can do 4K raw video out of the box, without hacking. (Limited to 30 frames per shot). At € 248, kit lens included.

  • My advice is to start your own 'passion project'. Find a theme, topic and then go at it for a longer period of time (I'd say at least a year). This will make you much more 'mindful and focused'...

    A little bit of spot metering with the cult-classic LX3. Love those Panasonic jpegs and the Leica lens. Picture was taken in Bellewaerde Theme Park, near Ypres, Belgium. The waterfall is fake and the rocks are canvas.

  • Very impressive, but not entirely new: the Nikon 1 cameras use a similar technology (with a limited number of AF pixels in the sensor).
    Still, if this works with some fast lenses (f1.4), it is...

  • What a smart idea! Turning a 800 euro smartphone into an action cam. Oh yeah!
